I'm pregnant with my first so I'll not be that much help but my neices are 8,5, and 2. I think my sister planned this perfectly as by the time the next baby arrived the previous one was out of diapers. personally I'd want my baby out of diapers before getting pregnant as i've found I'm very sensitive to smells. I baby sat for my sister a couple months ago and was changing a poopy diaper. no sooner had I opened the diaper than I was running to the toilet leaving a barely two year old lying on the floor giggling and covered in crap. I was so worried she'd get up and run through the house leaving a trail behind her, but thank god she just laid there till I got done. I went back holding my nose and told her she's stinky and she just held her little belly and laughed at me! As for the lack of drama in your post, I agree if there were some drama you'd have more posts.
Well I wanted to wait until my son was 2 to start trying I was thinking about 3 years difference would be perfect!!! Well to my surprise yesterday I took a test and I am pregnant! My son is 15 months so they will be 23 months apart. Not too close but a little closer than I wanted.
Thanks for the replies girls!congratulations to you scubachick,I wish you all the luck with the pregnancy!
As for me,well we will see we've been trying this month so by the end we'll know if something took we got lucky the first time so,I guess I'm hoping it does this time to(wishful thinking).I'm still a little unsure if they are still going to be too close but my fiancee and I have kinda layed out thing we want to do over the next 5 years and the sooner we have the next child the better to execute those plans.Thanks again for the replies!
Ah, plans. . . I think that's going to be a plus to our deciding to have our kids close together. Planning things, like family vacations!! This summer I'm pregnant and the boys are getting bigger, but not always big enough, so it definitely limits what you can do. I'm so excited for 5 years from now when all 3 will be big enough to do things!! But, who knows, by then I might have gotten brave (or stupid) enough to try for that little girl! LOL
Plans-yup like getting married,(lol)we had a date set for July07 dress/rings already bought(one of my bridesmaids even bought her dress)then in july 06 we found out we were expecting! So,needless to say getting married like 8 weeks after baby is kinda crazy.(my opinion)so we cancelled.When we discussed doing it again (getting married) We opted to go away and have the honeymoon at the same time,Like Jamaica.So we are going in feb10(yr)and if we'd have a baby now he/she would be 1 and Logan would be 3 but if we waited until after Logan would be 4 by the time it was born and I kinda feel that's to far.I'm an only child and my fiance is 1 of 3,brother 36 sister 27 charles 26;so him and his sister are really close(and if his mom could do it I should be able to;lol).
About the girl,that's too funny!That's pretty much why I want to have another one,now I have accepted that I could have a boy as long as he/she is healthy that's really all that matters.You might think I'm crazy but I kinda did some web surfing looking up gender selection stuffand I found some pretty interesting stuff! Anyways,I have done the things they recommend(basic stuff,I didn't pay for it all)so I'll let you know if it works!Thanks for listening to my ramble
I currently have a 10 month old baby girl at home and I am about 5 months pregnant with my second. Um, as far as timing goes, I believe that there is no right or wrong time to have a baby. If you want one, just go for it. I have to say being pregnant is harder if you have a little one to chase after all day. You don't get the luxury to sleep or hang out when you want too. But I am really happy that my babies will be so close in age. I am hoping it will make them closer. Plus, you get to get all the baby stuff out of the way, diapers and such and then move on to the next thing. I think having kids close is way better than having them farther apart. Its gonna be hard for a couple of years but then I anticipate it getting easier. Hope this helps.
My Husband and SIL are 16 months apart and they are best friends. Even though Alicia was only 7 months old when Kiel was conceived it worked out great. They are so much closer to each other than they are to their oldest sibling who's 2-3 years older.
In my family my younger sister and I are 2.8 years apart and my younger brother and I are almost exactly 8 years apart. I honestly have always gotten along better with my brother than my sister. My sister and brother are 5.4 years apart and they do not get along AT ALL!
